Lift Gate Sensor ?

Hi all, I own a 2016 Renegade Trailhawk. I took my car in for a routine maintenance. When I picked it up the tailgate sensor was on. I closed the gate, but it hasn't turned off. The lift gate latches but it will not lock. So, when I lock my car the 4 doors lock but the lift gate does not. Anyone have any advice besides schedule with maintenance again?

Check the latch hoop on the body isn't loose, hasn't moved.

Haven't had THAT problem on my 2016 Trailhawk BUT did have the rear liftgate NOT opening no matter what I did - locked, unlocked with fob, etc. All it did was HONK 2x and flash the lights when I tried to open it. Worked FINE up until now. The My Sky power also is not working. Don't know if there's a connection. BUT today I found a way to open the rear liftgate - there is a tiny hole on the drivers LEFT side underneath the rear roofline - up by the brake light. Inside that hole is some sort of reset switch - I put my finger in and felt a spring-loaded sort of plastic screw - I pushed it in, and it must have reset the door lock on the liftgate! holy COW - doesn't take much to make me happy! SO give that try to reset your liftgate. Let us know if it works - Kris
